    Hi Yall, so long story short, on New Years Eve my stock H22a4 blew up and melted a piston on me. She ran strong for 242,000 miles original to the car. Well some things happen for a reason, the previous summer, i actually purchased a used F20B that had a blown piston from being boosted by...

    Hey y'all. I'm in a bad way. I got furloughed last week and so I've been doing some gig work around town. Problem is, now I need a water pump, and I just don't have the dough to get one... Anyone feeling particularly helpful today? I'm within walking distance of the O'reilly's at 6015 Jimmy...

    So, I blew a head gasket after doing some cooling system repair and forgetting my rad cap on the driveway... Yeah stupid... So Im finished replacing it and am cleaning and putting everything back together. Specifically, the problem I'm having is that I've got the 2 camshafts back onto the...
  4. 5th Gen
    Extreme TL:DR : Manual 5th gen Type SH. Cranks, won't start. Sat for a year. Packed with snow after sitting. New battery. Full timing job done. Ignition wires and spark plugs replaced. Good spark, compression and fuel. Can hear fuel pump prime. No check engine light or codes. Check engine light...
  5. 4th Gen
    Ok so i know i need h22a1 injectors to match the p13 ecu for obd1, but i am unsure of which injectors exactly will work with the stock p13 ecu without running lean or rich. Ive found several injectors for sale on website, but i am not sure if they will work with the p13. I believe these are the...

    This project build will be pretty exciting for sure! Picked up this 2000 Prelude from auction for $200. It is a Base model, H22a4, manual tranny. It was fairly stock with only a short ram intake and lowering springs put on it. Only real issue that was obvious was an oil leak. After...

    I've read a lot but haven't seen this direct answer.I'm new to ludein and Hondas in general but I'm in love. so I did an accord swap first time out in the Honda world. just an f22 swap to f22 everything went well. I was getting ready to do the h22 swap into it. But I recently found a 4th gen...

    I know its not a great question, but im a civic fanboy. What are the main differences between the sh 5th gen and the base model? Especially with having to do with the oil pressure switch? 98 h22a4
  10. 5th Gen
    Hey guys, wondering if someone here could help me with this one. So I have a 98 Prelude with the h22a4 and it makes an unidentified rattling noise right around 2500 rpm after it has fully warmed up. It also only does it under load, if your off the throttle coasting, it goes away. I was...

    I know you all are going to say search the forums, so I will start off by saying that I did and I have found nothing. If it is there I apologize. I just got into the prelude game and just sold my Ej8 civic. I bout the prelude for $2,000 off an evident crackhead and rebuilt the engine and bout...

    I am sure this has been discussed before somewhere but I have a few questions regarding pairing a JDM H22A head onto a USDM H22A4 block. I have a 94 Prelude that has a CAI and was caught in a flash flood and well, you can guess what happened there... After getting all the water out and trying...

    Hi all, I have a complicated and frustrating situation that I could use some advice on. Here's the background info: - I hydrolocked my 1998 automatic base prelude. (F***!) After measuring the piston heights (and seeing water in a cylinder), it was clear that I bent a rod pretty good. I opted...
